I’ve spent a lot of time over the last couple of weeks on planes and in airports.
There is nothing really new here, my job means that I travel around a lot. I’m used to spending far more time than I’d really like in passport control queues and in horribly air conditioned compartments.
The one thing that is new is that this time while I was deciding that I wouldn’t eat the limp looking roll that appeared in front of me, I actually bothered to read the packaging.
Kessler(Ham) & Cheese Roll
May contain: Traces of Celery, Fish, Crustaceans, Molluscs, Egg, Nuts, Mustard, Sesame, Sulphur Dioxide & Sulphites, & Products thereof.
Manufactured by Flight Catering Co.Ltd. Malta
Crustaceans? Sulphites? Is there anything that it might not contain?
Now, I do appreciate that some people have allergies, and that therefore labelling like this is a good thing, but it seems a bit strange to me that they didn’t bother to mention the gluten in the bread.
